Intersection Merlot Silica
Upon harvest, the Silica is treated to 28 days of fermentation followed by ageing in tight-grained French oak, 30% new. This wine is gravity clarified, meaning that we rack the juice off of the settled sediment rather than pushing it through filter pads. This results in bolder structure, more density, and the designation: “unfiltered.”
A vibrant and concentrated red fruit nose leading into luxurious raspberry torte on the palate with a long, elegant finish. Excellent structure formed by an intermingling of crisp underlying acidity and full, firm tannin. A powerful and robust wine, the Silica pairs beautifully with rack of lamb or with pancetta and baked olives.
